Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerThe result display with result values on surfaces is very helpful for this.It is already preset that only extreme values are displayed. In addition, you can specify in the Results navigator whether the extreme values of the entire model, all surfaces or solids, or all local peak values should be displayed.
AnswerYes, you can define an area in the panel by clicking the button "options". Here you can define a customized area by moving the slider. In that case the areas with higher or lower stresses have no color.
AnswerThe detailed dimensioning details can be called up in the point of usability under the individual proofs. To do this, the line with the corresponding proof must be selected and then the info button pressed (see Figure 1). The design details can also be selected in the lower part of the dialog.
AnswerFor volumes, we do not provide any internal forces in the program. The conversion of the Spannnugnen in internal forces would be very complex, since not only mx, my and mz would be present, but also the parts of the drill, mxy, myz, mxz also lateral forces and normal forces. With volume one limits oneself usually on a direct voltage evaluation. If you still need internal forces, you have the option to apply the internal forces of the volume to a rod. For this purpose the result bar was implemented in the program.
AnswerYes, it works. To do this, in the Project Navigator - Show under "FE mesh" you have to activate the item "On surface results".
AnswerIn the Show Navigator, in the Results -> section Warehouse reactions you can activate the option "Draw in XY plane"
AnswerNo, this possibility does not exist. Node deformations are always output in relation to the global coordinate system, regardless of whether the structure input was done using a user-defined coordinate system.Optionally, the output of local bar or area deformation results may help as needed.
AnswerFor all proofs that are maintained in RF- / FUND Pro, the design details with all intermediate values are available for inspection and control.To view the intermediate results, you can switch to the result mask "2.2 Relevant proofs". There you select a proof from the upper table, eg. Eg "Ground Breaking (EC 7, 6.5.2)". The detail table then changes in the lower part of the dialog and displays all intermediate values for this verification.For example, how the dead weight of the foundation plate is determined and applied for the respective evidence. Or how the overburden is taken into account in the proof.The partial safety proofs change depending on the proof. This is also evident in the intermediate values.
AnswerThe panel which appears after calculation has a filter for displaying certain elements. From time to time it is possible that consciously or unconsciously elements have been removed from the display of the results.
It is therefore recommended that elements in the results display are missing unexpectedly, first to control the filter of the panel (see picture).
AnswerThe model information and loads are taken over when opening an old RSTAB7 / RFEM4 file. Due to the constant development of our software and the implementation of new features, the processing of results is not always possible. It then appears when opening a corresponding message window.
If you want to analyze the results, we recommend opening the file in the corresponding RSTAB7 / RFEM4 program version.
